The only way to ensure that the people you would like to benefit from your estate will receive anything on your death is by writing a Will.
With the assistance of our specialist team, a Will is simple to do and provides peace of mind that your affairs have been left in order.

It is important to make a Will, whatever your age and whatever your personal circumstances. We appreciate that it can be quite a daunting task and that is why our friendly team are happy to discuss any questions you may have about making a Will.

The following are just some of the benefits that can be achieved by making a Will:

  • Your chosen guardian(s) can be appointed for any minor children you may leave behind;
  • You can place assets into a trust for your children to ensure they do not inherit large sums of money automatically when they turn 18;
  • You can outline your funeral wishes which can relieve your loved ones of a great deal of stress at a difficult time;
  • You can choose who to appoint to manage and deal with your estate;
  • A professionally drafted Will can utilise all available tax reliefs to reduce any inheritance tax that you otherwise may have to pay;
  • A Will states your wishes in clear terms which can make life a lot easier for your nearest and dearest;
  • You can decide who is to benefit from your estate. Without a Will, you have no control over who shall benefit and your estate shall be distributed in accordance with the intestacy rules. These rules can change at any time and currently do not include unmarried partners or step-children as potential beneficiaries;
  • You can protect assets for children from previous marriages, vulnerable beneficiaries and future generations through the use of trusts, as well as protecting assets from being used to pay for care fees;
  • You ensure that any pets you have go to a loving home by stating your wishes within your Will.

  • If you wish to write a new Will, or update an existing one, please contact our dedicated team who will be happy to sit down with you to discuss the available options in plain English.
